Eva Longoria's animal engagement

Eva Longoria's engagement involved "a lot of animals".

The 'Telenovela' actress was overjoyed when boyfriend José 'Pepe' Bastón - popped the question last month during a break in Dubai and she will never forget the effort the TV president made when it came to asking her to be his wife.

She said: "We were in Dubai -- didn't expect it there... One hundred percent surprised me. He's very romantic and sweet and kind, and so he put a lot of effort into it and it was very memorable.

"There were camels present, a bird, a bird was present as well... A lot of animals were involved in our engagement... It was beautiful, it was romantic, it was awesome."

The 40-year-old beauty has formed a close bond with José's three children from a previous relationship.

Speaking on 'Extra', she said: "They're great, I love them."

But Eva dismissed recent speculation she and her 47-year-old fiance are planning to adopt a child together.

She said: "I will tell you one rumour that I want to clear up is... somebody said we're adopting. We're not adopting -- I don't know where that came from."

Things are going well professionally for the former 'Desperate Housewives' actress too and she's delighted to be back on screen in 'Telenovela'.

She said: "My big return to television, back in front of the camera... it's exciting!

"It's just so funny. It's a great big workplace comedy and it's not in Spanish -- people think it's in Spanish, it's in English!

"I play Anna Sophia, who's this star of this Spanish soap opera who doesn't speak Spanish, so she's kinda a fish out of water in this world and she has to work with all these crazy people but most of all her ex-husband comes back who she hates and she has to start working with him again."
